The pottery holidays are best suited to serious aspirants looking for personalized teaching & peaceful practice time.
Long stay pottery retreats at Aura are structured getaways for individuals who are at the beginner level or intermediate potters. A beginners pottery course is for a minimum duration of one week. A long stay would range typically from 2 weeks (min) to 12 weeks (max). Our local guests can choose to complete their retreat over weekend classes.
A pottery retreat means you spend time with like-minded people, explore your own creativity, get inspired by others, and all along enjoy and learn the art of pottery from India. Call it a pottery learning holiday, if you will.
Things you will learn:
Wedging and clay preparation
Wheel throwing, centering, pulling and making basic pottery shapes
Trimming and finishing on the wheel
